Degrees of Insanity

Is it more insane
to long to grow away from prisons
than to feel we still belong imprisoned?

Are we already prisoners,
lacking images for liberties
and co-arising responsibilities,
of a re-embodied god?

Are we divine authorities
to remake humanity
in our own god and goddess incarnations
free of body limiting imaginations?

Could we imagine
a YHWH who embodies Earth,
cosmologically evolving through spacetime,
spiraling dense and complex octaves
of color as resonant scales of sound,
fragrance within redundant seasons
of FatherSpace suns and black star-caves
passing through MotherTime valleys and waves?

Imagine we are stardust
coming to see ourselves
as we might bust
hard thrust
know lust
grow trust
blow truth
speak sooth,
unfortunately rust,
imaging ourselves
through redefining us
across healthing regenerations.

Are we less insane
longing our way from prison
belonging free
without cancerously capital-investing cells?

Punishment spells?

BigDaddy will swell
if we tell
I am
where we are;
We are
where we belong.

I can’t cower
if you think that’s wrong
I can only sing
how god wrote my song.

And I can only dance
where Allah could best prance strong.

And we can only breathe
what TaoTime finds notnot
too double-binding long.

I think I would be wrong
to imprison what longs
to virally throng.

Aren’t we more insane
stuck in retribution’s prison
when god cries out for peace
restoring Earth’s freedom
from FalsePatriotic lies,
paternalism fried,
too many species
and future generations
of sacred Time’s regeneration
already died.

If only we had tried
a little less LeftBrain secular crazy
and a lot less RightBrain sacred lazy

Is it less insane
to long to stay in prison
than to know we don’t belong
or enslaved
to insanity ourselves?


Holier With Thou

My continuing impatience problem
with smug fundamentalists
self-asserting holier than thou moral positions,
is that Christ’s main point (and Mohammed’s)  is not
Holier Than Others, like Chosen People
but Holier With Thou,
as one interdependent EarthBound BodyMind.

British King James monotheistic readers
digest at AntiLiteraturist AntiWisdom Tables,
frankly AntiEcological
AntiHistorical Development of UnChanging Divine Love,
hiding behind
pure and patriotically loyal,
divinely inspired
rhetoric about their own
good faith and bad faith
sainted development and HellFire degenerative

The Gospel Messiah
reads to me as more of a Queen Shabbat EarthTheologian
with great respect
for Virgin Matriotic Human-Divine Wombs,
Holy Nature-Spirit Creatures
digesting the best Wisdom Literature Teachings
about a Creator Abba of OmniPresent Love,
ProActive BodyMinds of ReStorative Peace and Justice
within Eden of God’s Reign
with and through PolyCulturing Outcome Hands,
and Disciple Feet
following his humane-divine evolving Tao,
which, in British King James translation
would be Way,
and Truth,
and Life.

We have not yet learned fundamental fundamentalist fundamentalism,
the literal is yet also our radical
sacred distinctions between God’s Word
as predicating Original Intent of Earth,
and God’s predictive omnipotence
as Original Cause.

These are two different Messianic meanings
forecasting SpaceTime’s EarthBound Futures.

If Abba’s Words were intended to dominate our future choices,
then these would be as pretentious
as we might imagine robotically intimate evil-divine control.

If Abba’s words intend to conjoin,
to transubstantiate,
to creolize
our humane nature-spirit choices,
then these become
positively portentous
and predicating negatively degenerative dark emotions
and bad faith feelings
and notions,
dissonant intuitions of unresolved chaos.

If God’s word intends to remain dualistically and supremely aloof,
uncorrupted by our evolving human ego lives
of LeftBrain dominant mortally independent-empty identity,
then He would not have predicted
or created
a Messiah
to invite us to become
One Globally CoOperative BodyMind
of nondual
Win-Win love.

Love is cooperatively possible,
and competitively impossible
without internal dissonant tensions
in a too-LeftBrain dominant
nightmare of mental not fully bilateral consciousness;
still lacking potential,
and longed for,
therapeutic wellness.

Sacred scriptures of all cultures and times
are not divinely inspired
to predict Earth’s future,
or any one person’s future,
or any one nation’s future,
much less any one bottom-line competitive corporation’s future;
but to portend,
to predicate,
to inform our bilateral
Yang-Health Faith–Beautiful YinFlow,
sacred natural Earth portents
restoring Left-Right bicameral balancing consciousness,
Left predictive-reductive
with Right sacred portent-inductive.

Holy Spirits mysteriously portend;
They don’t magically predict
outside imaginable realms
of ecologically healthy RealTime
and unhealthy DissonantTime.

To imagine such an empowered
totally-predicted place
as Paradise Promised,
is to settle for formless lack of full embodiment
that could not be ecologically sensed
as Positive Paradise.

Such an opaque and colorless and functionless Heaven
would be a mature
fully-conscious human nature’s
worst claustrophobic and paranoid nightmare.
Possibly in full color,
but without any protagonist story-line;
an unchanging fixed-frame God
of statically omnipotent power.

Western religion’s historically evolving polycultures
are made in God’s predicating image
and are remade in each unique EgoIdentity’s self-image,
often patriarchal dominant,
so matriarchal suppressed Elder SacredRight.

Eastern Creation-Ecological nature-spirit cultures
are bilaterally made
from YangLeft and Right YinFlow,
Ego-Eco harmonic co-present consciousness
of positiving futures
as past predicated,
without patriarchally over-stretching prediction
of rights to own and rule EarthLives,
nondualistic Left-deductive humane
with Right-inductive divine,
secular-sacred balancing
ReStorative EarthPeace
as Ego-Eco Collateral Sacred Justice

Holier Together than Apart.

Holier Than Thou
for Jesus
was to be a Pharisee,
a Fake-Holy Despiser,
patriarchally invested only in Ego’s bottom-line
ChosenPeople Plutocratic Supremacy.


Past Portentous Futures

My past,
part of this present,
yet not desperately all
or I live too mortally
in our past;
still breathing
heart beating
but no other present signs
of hopeful life.

Just so,
this present
part of our future,
yet not all,
Or we have already died
without our Great Promise;
still shallow breathing
heart dissonantly beating
yet without future active hope
for love;
or end of fear for hate.

I did not intend retiring
into this exclusive vicinity
of domestic quasi-therapeutic family
as my end of future,
but this new beginning
when my past
and our extending present
meet in wealthy gratitude.

I learn positive attitude,
avoiding negative acerbic platitudes,
about others less present
to past pathologies
but not reliably predicting,
potential full integrity
of Love’s healthy co-arising futures.

As I age
my true confessions
and growing quieter celebrations
invite and seek to find
this larger future stage
of immortal themes
for incubating cooperative cakes
not left or right out in Eden’s rain
but danced and eagerly devoured inside
outside rappers and rhythmers,
rockers and rollers,
writers and dancers,
performers and story-tellers,
comedians and tragic permacultural operators
lyricists and logists,
whole-group systemitizers and sacred ecologists,
atheists and theists,
competing economists and cooperative empowerers,
concelebrating Win-Win game siblings
enraptured by our own
and others
operatic and epic creation
and re-creation,
and restoration
and reforesting
and polycultural outcome

about vulnerable climate pasts
part of this extending present,
but not at all without future hope
within already retiring
co-present re-memories.

Our deepest future stories
share our widest past
articulating each present moment’s vast potential
of vulnerability to doubt
for integrity of Love’s
great transitioning stage,
cooperatives loaned and borrowing
past patriarchally pretentious

Patriarchal Fundamentals of Spiritual HotCake Baking
left out too long
and fat
in the rain;
not so rich,
not so good.

My LeftDominant past,
part of this present,
yet not desperately all
YangLeft without YinRight
or I live mortally,
and tragically,
in our patriarchal past;
still breathing
heart beating
but no other present signs
of hopeful Matriotic-Patriotic


Choosing Integrity

what we respect
and whom we love most dearly
emerge from past relational choices we have made

intentional choices toward healthy integrity.

Yet too often
merely blundering along
hoping against reasonable faith
to avoid ultimately pathological trauma

I may not truly believe in heavenly peace,
but I sure as hell want to avoid even more hell.

for short-term band-aids
covering over long-term,
possibly even multi-generational,
therapeutic opportunities
to set aside retributive pay-back politics
perpetuating denial of ecological wisdom
and disassociation of human nature
from all sacred Earth natures.

no one actually prefers to set aside gratitude
for opportunities
to experience love’s integrative powers,
to embrace our own past and future EarthMothers,
to be filled with Her and His radiantly nurturing Wonder
and holy Awe
within FatherSun’s radiant light
and regenerative powers of ergodic-harmonic Matters;

are a planetary polyphonic ribbon
of historic revolution
still emerging from sacred Light’s heart
and mind
of divinely bright
sacred Love
of and for cooperative Win-Win life
and notnot evil
inevitably dualdark
and anti-political disempowering
and anti-ecological
bad faith choices.

what we respect
and whom we love most dearly
emerge from past integrity choices we have made.


Timely Universes

The Universe is the only self-referential reality
in the phenomenal world.
It is the only text
without context.
Thomas Berry

And yet
could no the same
be said of time
as text
without spatial context?

And could this universality of time as text
also become our co-gravitating unity
through co-arising diversity
of spaciating polypathic context?

Octavia Butler
defined God
as Change.

Time changes
or is eternally timeless;
a dead vacuous universal text
swelling and contracting
changes within timeless time
through eternally imaginable context.

If this Universe is God’s text
without further context,
then this co-emerging race through time’s distinctions
prefacing Earth’s voiceless extinctions
proves time’s full infinite eternity
contextualizes nothing more or less complete
than timeless here
as now,

Remembering time’s near completion
without date
or finite ego-measurement;
lacking too-reductive calculations,
deductive text within-
without inductive sacred context
for God’s Left and Right
YangForm through YinFunction

Universe as Sacred Change
EcoPolitical NonDual DiPolar Karma
Restorative Yang EcoJustice with YinYin-WinWin Peace.


Compromising Lives

“Living here can be compromising”
says Dad to Danny
in a John Irving novel.

Isn’t that our universal truth?

Living here is a compromising series of on-purpose accidents.
Living is compromising
with mortality heavily favored to win out,
maybe short-term,
maybe later.

But these odds
between two categories
switch places
between eight looking toward sixty-four,
and sixty-four looking longingly back toward eight,
measuring all small and large compromises
erupting through serenity

is just taking a time out
to notice the last clematis blossom
is exactly the same color
as the purple mums
hiding behind her.

is taking a moment
as no more or less perfect
just as it is,
a snapshot
between where we have come
since Earth was growing glaciers
to when Earth may, eventually, pass on.

A moment
perfectly balanced
in full-color octaves
of sight
and sound
and smell
and savory taste
of spectral Wonder.


WinWin Invested Wombs

Before dimensional
discontinuous investment returns
of MotherLand
there was a water womb
of continuous gifts
growing through primal matriarchal relationship
of deep gifting vulnerability.

Intimate wonder comes prior to thoughts
of becoming more deeply connected,
in both natural and spiritual ways.

Warm water womb
births landscapes
for exploring nature-spirits,
whether emerging from a distended womb
or a fertile egg
or a vulnerable seed
filled with wondrous unfolding potential integrities
of previously well-Landed interrelationships.

Restorative justice and peace
originates here,
in water’s intimate embryo
fueled by a gift economy of WinWin Wonder
predicting politically powerful cooperative relationships
should we Land
and continue regeneratiing
restoring Zero-Sum balance
between Yang passions of well-wombed egos
and yin’s restorative wombs
nutritional nurturing integrity
of purpose
with healthy intent,
vocations reweaving wealthy Landed cultures
born of EarthMother’s vulnerable
intimate politically double-bound warm waters.

For there to be retributive Land beneath our exhausted feet
there was first restorative water
to welcome our potential gifts.

For us to become filled with Earth’s spatial wonders
there was first a timeless bilateral gift economy,
sufficiency as grace
through vulnerable sacred nurturing,
secular nutritioning,
WinWin dipolar exchanges,
wealth of healthing Wonder.

Before the dualism of landscapes
there was water immersion.
Before restorative water,
waves of redistributive winds.
Before winds of time and change and revolutions,
sacred WinWin Wonder.
